What is Bkool and how does it work?

Bkool is a trainer app much like Strava or Rouvy, focussed on realism and training with a social aspect built-in too. What sets it apart from the rest of the trainer apps on the market are the huge variety of route options, as well as features like dynamic weather, headwinds and a night mode in your virtual ride.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
